Welcome Aboard UberBOAT

March 31, 2016 / Baltimore

This week, Baltimore is brimming with art, innovation, music, and plenty of light. As the city plays host to this one-of-a-kind light festival, Uber will be there to help festival-goers see Charm City like never before.

From Thursday, March 31 through Sunday, April 3, Uber is teaming up with Sagamore and Under Armour to provide water taxi rides in the Inner Harbor. With UberBOAT, you’ll be able to travel between the Science Center and Harbor East with the tap of a button, while also seeing a view of Baltimore unlike any other.

All rides will be free of charge, compliments of Sagamore. Here’s how you can experience the Light Festival with UberBOAT.

  2. Select your route (Science Center to Harbor East or Harbor East to Science Center).
  3. Choose number of seats (can reserve up to 4).
  4. Tap Request UberBOAT.
  5. Head toward your designated pickup location (the docks at Science Center or Harbor East).
